Lauren Conrad (aka L.C) is a major favourite of mine - I’m a Hill’s addict, just ask my boyfriend! He always catches me on MTV.Com watching episodes!
This beautiful star rose to fame whilst still in high school on MTV’s reality show Laguna Beach: The Real OC. A spin off series The Hills has been a HUGE hit and is about to air it’s fourth season. The Hills features Lauren and pals Whitney, Audrina, Lo and of course arch enemy Heidi as they go through their well unconventional lives in LA!
Lauren has never been large but decided to get her butt into gear last year and tone up for summer. Working with her trainer the star shed 6 pounds and has never looked better.
Read on to find out how Lauren Conrad lost the weight and got THAT body!
Lauren, like many of us 20-ish girls was always active when she was younger but had got out of the habit as her life got busier and busier.
Just because she’s a star on a hit reality show doesn’t mean Lauren is free of body worries. She says, ‘Like most girls, I-ve always been self-conscious of my body. When you are constantly being photographed, all your flaws get pointed out. I wanted to get in better shape so I could feel more confident’
So that’s exactly what Lauren did!
Lauren Conrad’s Diet
Lauren’s cute trainer Jarett Del Bene (who also features on The Hills) had the star commit to a 1500 calorie a day diet. Lauren had to fight her love of pasta and instead stock up on lean fish, beans and veggies.
Lauren says, ‘I have a hard time eating healthy when we travel a lot. My friends all make fun of me because when we all get back to my apartment at night, everyone wants to order pizza and I make them eat bean bowls.’
Here’s what Lauren’s eating plan looks like:
1. Latte with skim milk + Wholegrain waffle with 2 teaspoons peanut butter
1. 4 to 6 oz Fish Fillet with salad or roast veges
2. 4 to 6 oz Chicken Breast with salad or roast veges
1. 1/2 cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese + 10 Almonds
2. Low Fat Yoghurt + 7 Walnuts
Lauren eats around 5 to 6 small meals a day and drinks loads of water too. To counter-act her taco and pizza cravings Lauren makes a taco salad without the tortilla and instead of making sandwiches she replaces the bread with lettuce leaves.
Lauren also has one day a week where she can eat what she likes saying, ‘It-s important to cheat once a week.’ And while she might miss the pasta the star says, ‘When I work out regularly and eat healthy, I feel better.’
Lauren Conrad’s Workout
As I said earlier Lauren works out with trainer Jarett and he devised a great program for her that burned fat and toned her already slim body.
Surprisingly Lauren only works with Jarett TWICE a week and the workout involves lunges, squats, push ups, pull ups, free weight work, hitting the treadmill and some kick boxing routines.
Lauren says, ‘Jarett has me do a lot of reps with smaller weights because he-s not trying to build muscle so much as get my body toned.’
In an interview Jarett added, ‘Lauren really wanted to tone her arms and legs - she was happy with what she had, but she wanted to take it to the next level.’
Other than hitting the gym Lauren enjoys frequent 45 minute hikes at Runyon Canyon. The star says, ‘I love waking up early and going on an hour hike. It-s the perfect start to my day.’
Lauren can also be seen jogging with pal Lo and puppy Chloe around their Hollywood Hills house.
Lauren’s loving the results of her new exercise regime saying, ‘The first place I lost weight was my little belly-
